Kate Crane Art Journal Weekend

The last few weekends have been filled with crafting loveliness, the last one was spent with Kate Crane at the fabulous Art from the Heart shop in Harrogate.  Kate was teaching us ways of adding lots of different layers to our art journal pages.

Ready to get going!
The first day was playing with Amsterdam acrylic paints, they are lovely thick paints and very easy to work with and blend.  Lots of doodling, stamping and sponging through stencils.

We also used some Deli Paper with the Geli plate, it's a waxed paper and great to use on your page or stamp onto and cut your image out, saves colouring in!

 These are the painted pages from the first day.

The second day was all about getting very messy with inks, stamping and colouring!

Kate is a great teacher if you ever get the chance to do one of her workshops.  It was a fun, messy and very inky weekend with some new found friends, and of course some new supplies which just happened to fall into my shopping basket!!

Whilst I was still in the zone, here are some more journal pages.

Me with Kate
Mark came up to Yorkshire with me and we stayed in a little apartment in Knaresborough, we spent the rest of the week checking out the sights and eating far to much fish and chips!
The Shambles in York
Found this great little 50's American Diner in the Yorkshire Dales!  Amazing ice cream parlour!!

Last workshop this weekend, Kate Crane again making her junk journal, a bit closer to home this time at the Stamp Attic.

    Great to have a look through your photos of our weekend with Kate in Harrogate and see what else you did after the course ..... Hope you have a great weekend with Kate again this weekend

    1. Thanks Jackie, really enjoyed the junk journal class with Kate on Saturday, I'll post some pics of that too. x

  2. It's always great to see you Susan :-) All your journal pages look fabulous! x

  3. Love the journal Sue and the pics of you in Harrogate! You should have included one eating the fish and chips (or did they all get scoffed too quickly for a pic?!!) xx
